Stacy Keibler can now be added the long, long list of ex-girlfriends George Clooney has had. Clooney and Keibler have called it quits after nearly two years of dating, with Keibler being the one who reportedly called time on their relationship. People magazine broke the news and said that not only was it an amicable split, but that Clooney and Keibler are still speaking. A rep for Clooney declined to comment and said that the actor does not typically address his personal life.
However, it's unclear what caused the split between Clooney and Keibler. Initial reports claimed that the riff was due to Keibler wanting to get married and have children, while Clooney has been open about not wanting children or to ever get married again since his 1993 divorce to his first wife, Talia Balsam. "She knows where George stands on that," said a source to the magazine. Despite the initial reports, a source told ABC News that the split between Keibler and Clooney "had nothing to do with kids or wanting to get married."
Although the split is just now becoming public, many are speculating that it took place as far back as last winter. A source said they "quietly stopped being a couple several weeks ago," which would explain why they were opposite sides of the globe over the Fourth of July weekend. Keibler partied with friends in Malibu, while Clooney was at his Lake Como home. The pair have not been photographed together since last March, which has led some to believe that they split longbefore the holiday weekend.
Keibler downplayed the breakup rumors last month and said that working on her new Lifetime show, Supermarket Superstar, contributed to their time away from each other. "My schedule is keeping me pretty busy. Hopefully after that, I'll get the chance to go to Europe," she said. Keibler's new show will premiere on July 22.
For now, Clooney will be likely to play the field. His long-documented love life includes a five-year relationship with model Lisa Snowdon from 2000-2005, reality star Sarah Larson from 2007-2008, and Italian actress Elisabetta Canalis from 2009-2011. He also dated reality star Celine Baltran from 1996-1999 and Renee Zellweger in 2001.
Clooney's permanent bachelor status has become a running joke that's even led to Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum in Las Vegas to have a "Marrying George Clooney" photo-op, in which visitors can put on a wedding gown and stand next to a statue of Clooney in a tuxedo.
